you come from, no matter what religion you practice. the right of people to live without the threat that their families may be harmed simply because of who they are or where they come from. only the people of this country can define your union, can define what it means to be a citizen of this country. but i have confidence that, as you do that, you can draw on the diversity as a strength and not a weakness. your country will be stronger because of many different cultures. but you have to seize that opportunity. you have to recognize that strength. i say this because my own country and my own life have taught me the power of diversity. the united states of america is a nation of christians and jews and muslims and buddhists and hindus and nonbelievers. our story is shaped by every language, enriched by every culture. we have people from every corner of the word. we have tasted the bitterness of civil war and segregation. but our history shows us that hatred in the human heart can recede. that the lines between racism and tribes can fade away. and what's left is a simple truth, out of
that. [laughter] but it's, it just works. it's a form of religion. i really believe that. in which you don't have to, you don't have any morality, you just have places to go to worship. [laughter] >> by the way, we're going to -- i'm going to ask one more question, and then we're going to open it up to all of you who i'm sure have lots of questions for tom. finally, tom, after "bonfire of the vanities" you got into a few tiffs with other authors about what real writing is. you guys were particularly nastiest with mailer, updike and irving, referring to that -- if i remember correctly -- as the three stooges. were you just trying to start a fight just to be provocative? there seemed to be a choosing up of sides, and many along the 43rd street corridor at the time new york magazine often cited the scene with mailer and company. do you think this fight has had a negative impact on reviewers of your book? in other words, do you think they use each new book as a chance to get even? >> in a word, yes. [laughter] i couldn't resist. everyone always said never answer a review, it's crazy, it sh

changes -- than those who seek power and force others to obey their commands? why does the use of religion to support a social gospel and preemptive wars both which require authoritarians to use violence or the threat of violence go unchallenged? aggression and forced redistribution of wealth has nothing to do with the teachings of the world's grea religions. why do we allow the government and the federal reserve to disseminate false information dealing with economic and foreign policy? why is democracy held in such high esteem when it's the enemy -- when it's the enemy of the minoritynd makes all rights relative to the dictatesf the majority? why should anyone be surprised that congress has no credibility since there's such a disconnect between what politiciansay and what they do? is there any explanation for all the deception, the unhappiness, the fear of the future, the loss of confidence in our leaders, the distrust and anger and frustration? yes, there is. and there's a way to reverse these attitudes. the negative perceptions are logical and a consequence of bad policies bringing abou
was doing on a day-to-day basis. when he was advertising on welfare reform and the war on religion, i think the republican superpacs you're probably thinking what on earth are we doing here? >> so what you're saying is they were -- they need to get better at not coordinating their campaigns? [laughter] >> it's not even a matter of coordination, it's a matter of strategic direction, and the romney campaign never had one. and on the obama side, it was pretty clear his campaign was about the middle class. and every single ad we ran was if mitt romney wins, the middle class loses. so i think there was a much clearer lane for us to swim in than on the romney side. were they supposed to defend against the bain attacks? were today supposed to bet -- get into the welfare reform game? it was unclear. >> look, though, you run a superpac. do you think they're good for america? >> no. i think a system where you can give unlimited contributions and in some cases not disclose who those contributions come from is not something that's particularly a good thing for the country. our view is that even though
it better and different. >> exactly right. we don't have a religion. in fact our brand name would extend. the reason i get asked that question from time to time is because people know that the amazon brand name would probably work well, the physical world environment. so there are some, we have some of the assets in place that we would need to do that. >> would it have any advantage other than being a profit centre? which is a pretty good advantage. >> but that's the kind of question that we ask ourselves when we're looking for something that would make it not a me too offering. we want it to be differentiated. we want-- you know, if you-- if somebody is already-- if 100 companies-- companies are doing something and you're the 101s you're not really bringing any value to society. and so and typically by the way the business results aren't very good for something like that either. and so what we want to do is we want to do something that is uniquely amazon and if we can find that requested, and we haven't found it yet but if we can find that we would love to open physical stores. >> what
? or could it be worse-- do we start out nasty, selfish devils who need our parents, teachers, and religions to whip us into shape? the only way to know for sure, of course, is to ask a baby. but until recently, it's been hard to persuade them to open up and share their secrets. enter the baby lab. this is the creature at the center of the greatest philosophical, moral and religious debates about the nature of man: the human baby. they don't do much-- can't talk, can't write, can't expound at length about their moral philosophies. but does that mean they don't have one? the philosopher rousseau considered babies "perfect idiots, knowing nothing," and yale psychologist karen wynn, director of the infant cognition center here, the baby lab, says for most of its history, her field agreed. didn't we just think that these creatures at three months and even six months were basically just little blobs? >> wynn: oh, sure. i mean, if you look at them, they... >> stahl: yeah. >> wynn: ...they kind of look like little... i mean, cute little blobs. but they can't do all the things that a... an older chi
